Is it possible for my daughters father to show up after 3 years and get custody? He has not once contacted her or paid anything that she has need. I contacted him asking for him to step up or sign the child support papers but instead stated that he will be contacting his lawyer....

If you don't have a custody agreement and he has not terminated his rights, then yes, he is well within his rights to demand visitation, and he would be likely to get it. If you want child support, file for it.

Good. I'm glad that he did contact an attorney. He should, at the very least have visitation of the child, regardless of level of financial support.

Thank you. My child support case has been open for a while and just recently they contacted me stating that he will be paying child support. When we were together he phisically abused me and their is a police report in place. Cops have been to my house looking for him. So from what I understand he would have to attend domestic violence classes for abusers before he can even get visitations with my daughter. As well as we had a dcfs cae open a year ago and he never showed up to court and when my clase closed he would have to go through parenting classes and substance abuse treatment to be able to see my daughter.
